I am sorry for her symptoms.
You can use calamine lotion.
There is no reported interaction with prednisone.
There should not be any problem
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish her early recovery.
I would expect 5 star rating if you are satisfied with it.
Regards.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
